    Facundo Argañaraz: SO ON AND SO FORTH

    Facundo Argañaraz: SO ON AND SO FORTH

    Start Date: Saturday 6/10/2017 — End Date: Saturday 7/8/2017
    Admission:Free

    Contemporary capitalism prods us to make the most of our potential, sticking with the program and doing our best. Sven Lütticken [strikethrough] Facundo Argañaraz offers fascinating insights into the concepts of sleep and boredom and the potential of refusal as a counter-politics of the times, whose hero might be ___________________, the scrivener who not only stops writing but also explains that he would “prefer not to.” Intuition tells us that these modern concepts developed between the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution are as anachronistic as they are absolutely timely today.
    Opening reception June 10, 5-8 pm.

    Location: 1275 Minnesota Street, Suite 201 San Francisco, CA

Pre-event African Dance Class.

    7/22~ Latin Big Band: Pacific Mambo Orchestra
    This 19-piece Latin Big Band orchestra plays salsa, Latin Jazz, cha cha cha, bachata, and more. Their crowd-funded first album (self-titled ‘Pacific Mambo Orchestra’) led them to win a 20′4 Grammy in the ‘Best Tropical Latin Album’ category. San Francisco’s Premiere Salsa Big Band.

This event will have a wooden dance floor on the turf and pre-concert Salsa Class - be prepared for a street party that you’ll have to dance through!

    8/5~ Celebrate the Summer of Love: Melvin Seals & JGB
    Dress as you were or wished you had been, and come celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love! Melvin, revered for his powerful, high-spirited Hammond B-3 organ and keyboards in the Jerry Garcia Band (JGB), plays with a rock-gospel-soul-rhythm and blues touch and funky style. No wonder Jerry nicknamed him ‘Master of the Universe”.

    The Kanbar Center at the Osher Marin JCC is proud to present the Grammy Award-Winning contemporary string quartet, KRONOS QUARTET.

    For more than 40 years, San Francisco’s Kronos’s Quartet -David Harrington (violin), John Sherba (violin), Hank Dutt (viola), and Sunny Yang (cello) — has combined a spirit of fearless exploration with a commitment to continually re-imagining the string quartet experience. In the process, Kronos has become one of the world’s most celebrated and influential ensembles, performing thousands of concerts worldwide, releasing more than 60 recordings, collaborating with many of the world’s most eclectic composers and performers, and commissioning more than 900 works and arrangements for string quartet.

    A Grammy winner, Kronos is also the recipient of both the Polar Music and Avery Fisher Prizes. With a staff of ten, the nonprofit Kronos Performing Arts Association (KPAA) manages all aspects of Kronos’ work, including the multi-year education and legacy project Fifty for the Future: The Kronos Learning Repertoire, which is commissioning—and distributing for free—the first learning library of contemporary repertoire for string quartet.
